Most likely. Some bone could have chipped off and this might cause a tiny amount of internal bleeding. That's why it looks so swelled up. Hamster, and other rodent's bones', are very delicate. Bring the hamster to the vet immediately!

Has your hamster broken her leg if she is holding it up and putting it down every few steps?

Your hamster could have got a bad sprain or a bad bruise. Feel around her leg and if you feel a broken bone, bring it to the vet. Only the vet can deal with tiny broken bones. If you don't feel anything broken, then the only answer could be a sprain or bruise. The most common reason is the wheel. If it is an open-barred wheel (it has holes in it) the hamster could have tripped on one of the holes and bruised the leg. Get a closed hamster wheel and make an appointment for the vet. Just to make sure.
